Copywriting Competition: Tell us a story.

We have a winner of our “Tell us a story” competition.
Congratulations to Jessica Lohmann with her winning entry:

Upon landing in Frankfurt, 7416 kilometers away from ‘home’, I felt nauseous because my life as I knew it was about to change.

A huge thank you to all who took the time to enter and also to vote.
We will be posting our next competition in a couple of weeks time so keep a look out!


We all love a good story, whether reading or listening to one, or writing or telling one ourselves.

This month we have thrown the gauntlet down to really challenge you guys.
We are asking you to write a short story, in 25 words or less.
This was inspired by a picture we posted on our FB page a while ago.

We felt that if a college student could do such a good job, then you gifted and talented copywriters could do even better!
The criteria of the competition is as follows:
– You must use 25 words or less.
– Each story must reference an emotion, a location and one fact.

The Grand Prize
We have also made a change to our prize. This month we will be giving the lucky, sorry talented, winner The Essential George Orwell Boxed Set.
We’re also running a Copywriter of the Year competition, with cash prizes, and the winner will automatically be entered into it.

Rules of the ‘Tell us a story’ copywriting competition
You can enter as many times as you like – but every entry must be your own work. We will ‘Google test’ entries by running them through the search engine to see if the story has been used elsewhere.

Closing date
The closing date is the 02/09/2015, so you have until then to post your entry.

We will then make a selection of the top three and post them on our social media channels (Twitter, FB and Linkedin). Whichever entry gets the most likes/retweets/comments within a week wins.

How to enter?
It’s easy, just scroll down to the comments box below and type in your entry. Post your personal details as well so we can contact you and link to you at the end if you win. You can also comment on other people’s entries if you like their ideas.

Get your thinking caps on, let the creative juices flow and good luck.
